that all of you took the time to be here and work so hard to get us here. i have nothing more to say, thank good from your perspective, except again to say thank you and particularly to the planning department for all of their work and to c.p.w. for their stewardship of this process and just get ready, caesar chavez is going to be exciting and leyland and you are going to see on 19th a similar effort very soon. thank you very much for coming out. [applause] >> thank you, mr. mayor. speaking of businesses like this, being in the midst of a construction project for many months can be challenging for small businesses, and i think all of the businesses up and down this stretch of valencia can attest to the fact that it was challenging and we worked hard to make it as smooth and quick as possible so they could be the beneficiaries with the rest of the neighborhood. i want to again acknowledge mike gillotti the contractor who built all of this. they did a great job. given the conditions we had they got done faster than we thought they would. i pt want to acknowledge our buu of construction manage

[applause] >> item 19. >> madam chair, and 19 has already been called. commissioner chiu: thank you. i appreciate your patience. this is an item of significant importance to an institution within chinatown in my district, which has been in need of significant and expensive seismic work. i noted to do this, we need some tweaks to the bonds are around transferable rights, and we considered this last week at land use and had passed out a version of legislation unanimously, but over the last few days, a number of representatives of other projects have come to a number of us asking for some consideration of changes, so what i would like to propose at th
time it leaves us and is assigned to a hearing officer takes 14 days. that is the parties have two weeks to agree upon a hearing officer and a hearing date within 90 degrees. if they do not do that within two weeks, which is quite a long time, it comes back to us for normal assignment. that is the second proposed change. the third one is on page three, section d. the current rule reads no reassignment of case. that is the problem. when a case gets assigned, it can flow out there whenever -- for however long. i think the case has languished and not gone to a hearing within 90 days, we take it back to the commission either to be heard by us or for an individual commissioner to do it. the fourth is later on. it is on page seven, i believe, at least on my copy. this is to do with what happens when the hearing is over. under the current procedures, the hearing officer, who is paid 300 or $400 an hour, is given time to write a lengthy report including telling us what he or she thinks should happen in the case. we have to read the transcript any way to come to our independent judgment, so

types of alcohol, it would be easier for us to apply that fee without taking into account the different ways that alcohol can be manufactured and make it easier for the tax collector to do the work and businesses to report on their sales. the amendments, we allowed this hearing to consider the amendments and are facing a timeline based on prop. 26, which is on the november ballot. prop 26, if it were to pass, would prevent the municipalities and state government from creating any fees in the future unless they had two-thirds of the public or the electorate. you might think that that helps to yield fiscal accountability in the county's, but it might also severely hamstring local governments from making decisions about their finances. today, primarily we have it open for public comments. everyone that wishes to speak will be allowed to speak on the measure. i will be asking my colleagues to move this item forward to the september 7 board meeting. it will be the first one after our recess. i will be around after this week for the month of august to take in concerns. there has been a discus
